    The perfect song selection

    Proper song selection is the one of the ways we keep people tuned in all night and with our 200 plus song selection, we know exactly what the crowd wants to hear from minute to minute based on crowd response. We also recommend you request favorite hits to guarantee you get to hear all your favorites. If the band doesn’t perform the songs live, we can put together a custom DJ list of your favorite hits to DJ on our breaks. We can even throw in a few songs from other genres so the crowd gets a little variety thrown in the mix and also take requests through the night. The Grooves dance songs also include music from other styles such as Motown, reggae, swing, soul music, latin, r&b, and pop.

     

    Our band can perform a Custom Country set for your event

    The band’s performance is staged in accordance with the agenda for the evening. For weddings we usually start off during cocktail hour or dinner and play slower and mid tempo music at a lower volume so people can enjoy their conversations and cocktails without having to leave the room. Come party time, we perform high energy, full throttle entertainment that focuses on keeping the dance floor full with audience interaction. The Grooves engage the crowd with one sing-a-long after another in a series of rehearsed medleys and transitions all without missing a beat. We can also play all your requests and DJ any songs that are not on our performance list to make sure you get to hear every one of your country favorites as well as any other genre you prefer.

     

    All Sound and lights provided and we are fully self contained

    The Grooves provide quality sound and lighting production that surpasses the other bands attempting to play in our league. We have the best quality sound system with a brand new, state of the art mixing console, wireless microphones for the singers and a digital drum set that perfectly suits the needs of any room the party’s in. Our light show is unparalleled with our light engineer providing the best party lights for any song the crowd is ready to dance to.

     

    We have performed for over 95 weddings a year since 1991

    The Grooves have performed at an unrivaled amount of weddings throughout Austin, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, and the surrounding cities in this vast state of Texas. The band members are wedding experts and we work closely with brides, grooms, the parents, and the wedding planners so that all the details are ironed out to ensure the perfect wedding night. We also MC the wedding so the guests know who’s giving a toast, when the bouquet toss is happening, and other events they might otherwise miss, such as the cutting of the cake and the grand exit. The band will also DJ all break music and even cocktail hour if the Bride prefers it.

     

    we are the Fortune 500 company favorite and have the perfect familiy-friendly show for corporate events

    The Grooves provide the best in high-energy dance music for corporate events and holiday parties. We’ll keep your event dancing all night or even all weekend if our client prefers, so that come Monday everyone will be talking around the water cooler about what a great time they had with everyone at work. They’ll especially be talking about you know who because of you know what, and everyone will know each other a little bit better because they love their job. When it comes to award ceremonies, The Grooves work closely with technical directors, production managers, and coordinators to ensure a flawless and professional ceremony from start to finish.

     

    Rodeos? we love'em!

    The Grooves are no strangers to rodeo parties and play several a year here in Texas. We play Rodeo after parties for the employees and we’ve even played BBQ cook offs before and after the rodeo’s main events. The band plays outdoor auditoriums, large scale tents, arenas, and even smaller exclusive events when the party needs an awesome country band to keep the crowd going all night. We even open up for large, well known national artists that are huge in the country scene. If your rodeo party needs professional entertainment for a large scale crowd, The Grooves are your band.

    Attire to match the theme of your party

    The Grooves dress according to the event of the night. The band will dress in full country attire for that Texas country experience your party needs, or in tuxedos for the men and the finest upscale garments for the lovely ladies of the band. When the coordinator is looking for something in between then we’ll mix it up with our personal favorite, the Texas Tuxedo, with Tux shirts, vests, blue jeans and boots. We’ll top it off with some cowboy hats and everyone will have a good ol’ fashion Texas size party. For your Tex-Mex themed events, the band can wear boots and sombreros to throw in a Southwest flare which is popular with our Fortune 500 companies that want to give their clients from overseas a true taste of Texas. The band not only covers classic country from the 60's and 70's but also covers the ever popular 80's country all the way to current, including local Texas Red dirt country in true Texas form.

    Mike Johnson

    WORLD CLASS SHOW!!! These guys didn’t miss a beat!! My father turned 60 this weekend and we threw him the party of the decade!! So many memories in one night!! The band played all the songs he grew up with and all his favorite country hits too! They had such a wide range of songs that everyone enjoyed watching them. Even the younger kids jumped in on the dance floor!! I haven’t seen that at a family reunion ever!!

    Ron Metzger

    You guys were awesome!! Thanks again Ron for being so accommodating to our Christmas party! Everyone had a great time and came into work the next week bragging about the band! GREAT SHOW!!

    BEST BAND EVERRRRR!!!!!! My husband and I wanted to have a smaller wedding, but with a great band too and didn’t think we could afford it, so we called Ron and asked him what we should do. It turns out The Grooves can play as a smaller band for less money and we hired them instantly! They played as a 4 piece band and sounded just as good as the video on their website! I’m 26 and my husband’s 27 so we asked what they could play to keep the crowd dancing and they told us not to worry one bit. They had so many newer hits to play than we thought. They even played songs that weren’t on the list, but everyone knew and liked. We were extremely impressed with how they already knew the songs that just came out and kept everyone cheering for more. They even played a few rap songs and everyone started singing along!! I DID NOT see that coming!! My friends were BLOWN AWAY by the songs they were playing and we were just happy that we could afford them! BY FAR THE BEST BAND I’VE SEEN!!! I’m so happy they worked with our budget because every other band was so overpriced. My Dad was happy with our decision since he helped out. The Grooves made my husband and I look good and I’m glad we chose them!! BEST BAND EVER!!!

    The Grooves played our fundraiser event this year and knocked it out of the park!!! We do this every year and its usually like pulling teeth to get people to have a good time. NOT THIS YEAR! They had people dancing from the start and the band just kept on getting better. We reached our goal and then some before the party was even over. This is the first time I was in charge of booking the band but they made me look good and I can’t thank Ron enough for being so thorough and easy to work with. I already talked to my boss about hiring them next year and he was on board!!
